Sadly No Hajj This Year, But You Can Do Ziyarah Virtually. Here’s How!
People who truly desire to visit the Holy Kaaba can install the app named 'Labbaik VR' and see Kaaba's virtual site and all other holy sites.
Sadly, this year Hajj is not open for all. Saudi Arabia has announced it will hold a “minimal” Hajj this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. People who are already living in the kingdom are allowed to take part in the pilgrimage.
People who truly desire to visit the Holy Kaaba can install the app named ‘Labbaik VR’ and see Kaaba’s virtual site and all other holy sites.
About the app
“Labbaik VR is the world’s first fully advanced, 3D Virtual Reality Hajj and Umrah app. Hajj is the definitive journey that every Muslim yearns to undertake. However, many pilgrims are confused about the right way to perform the holy rituals, as well as remembering the locations of the holy landmarks.”
The app trains the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims to perform the complete set of rituals in a Realistic 3D version of the holy locations in Makkah. This enables fast, easy learning and enhanced retention of the information taught to the pilgrims.”
It also features the Holy Kaaba precincts, the Arafat grounds, Muzdalifah, Jamarat, and other holy locations. Moreover, it can also help in learning specific mandatory ‘prayers’ for the pilgrimage.
